Posted on 06/01/2019 6:33:54 AM PDT by Altura Ct.
Barack Obama asserted that the United States was founded on inequality, despite the Constitution enshrining equality into the law.
Obama said: You know Brazil just thinks the United States was founded on inequality and we have to admit that even though the United States has a Constitution that says, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, At that time not only were blacks excluded, but women were excluded, and people who didnt own property were excluded.
Obama commented on his understanding of the founding of the United States during the VTEXDAY 2019 conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday.
Obama said that the Constitution gave America the means of inclusion through Democracy.
The more people we included, the more successful we became, he said.
Obama used a basketball analogy to illustrate his point, pointing out that the NBA was better than ever by including more international players like Giannis Antetokounmpo, a Nigerian from Greece who plays for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Now hes one of the best players in the world, Obama said, pointing out that if the NBA did not include international players, they were leaving talent on the field.
If you dont include women, you are leaving talent on the field, Obama said, saying it was in every countrys interest to include everyone.
He admitted that perfect equality was difficult to achieve, because of natural talent and work ethic.
The issue is not perfect equality, the issue is, are those of us who are successful willing to give back enough to provide a ladder of opportunity for others that are coming behind us, he said.

Obama struggling in vain to achieve philosopher status.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident...” is from the Declaration of Independence. That’s what liberals like about Obama: he’s ignorant and bad-mouths America at every opportunity.
I’m sorry the Founders of America didn’t live up to the standards of modern left-wing liberal college adjunct professors.
If America was “founded on inequality,” I guess all of Western Civilization is “founded on inequality.”
Certainly the Democrat Party was “founded on inequality,” being that it was the pro-slavery party.
He continually demonstrates he is an enemy of the state through and through.
Shut up you lying bigeared muzzie POS
There are no words for my utter contempt of this man.
Socialists always include themselves inhe successful ... as if stealing from the ignorant breeds success
SHUT UP zer0!!!!!
Hes just pointing out where we started to make mistakes.
> The United States Was Founded on Inequality <
So what? No nation has a perfect history.
We as Republicans can take pride in our legacy of having eliminated a lot of those injustices.
The US was founded on freedom and capitalism
The two things OCommie hates most
3 days ago he told a large speech audience in Sao Paolo that **any American can buy machine-guns over the internet**.
That was true only up to the point where we included a no-account, community organizing, Kenyan, mullatto, homo communist in our government.
The foundational principle that guides all leftists...America is bad, illegitimate, corrupt! The glass has always been more than half empty. Ignore the good, focus on the bad. Only progressive secular Marxist principles will lead us out of the darkness. Put all your faith in anyone with progressive values to level the playinging field with benign wealth distribution. Do not trust Constitution or God. Trust ME! The CHOSEN ONE! How did we survive this fool!
This is te stupid that you learn when you are raised in foreign countries.
Says the person who grew up in Honolulu’s country club community thanks to his white grandfather who owned one of the more exclusive furniture stores in the area and white grandmother who was a vice president at the Bank of Hawaii. They probably wrote notes to his teachers excusing him from homework and even going to school on numerous days probably because they figured those things were well below his abilities even at that time.
Yes, the USA was founded on inequality, but through the grace of God and Divine Providence, we have emerged from our founding days into a more perfect union by following the Constitution , not the Saul Alinsky lights of liberal fascists like Obama, who want to destroy America, destroy our true history reflecting how we got here,to rebuild it into a racially divided nation ruled over by sanctuary cities and states who defy the Constitution on the basis of a Saul Alinsky derived moral superiority, one law for minorities and another for Whites, Jews and Asians?Ruled by a hegemony of racial privileged so that we see things like Jussie Smollet’s and Hillary Clinton’s resting places above the law?
We through that junk out in 1776, and we ARE NOT going back to being ruled by virtue of a continuously shifting privileged morality as defined by liberal fascists like Barack Obama, who belong in the garbage dumpster. We will never give up our Constitutional Freedoms so that we can be “free” under liberal fascist tyrants like Obama.
